It really doesn’t get much better than eating a cool, creamy tart with juicy fresh fruit on a hot summer evening. A few friends and I had a delicious bison barbeque this past week. We had one dish after another until we could hardly eat anymore… but then came the dessert. Consumption of this dessert took place around my kitchen counter with moaning, mmm’s and oh my god’s coming from stuffed faces.
I have noticed that a lot of bloggers have recently been posting fruit tart recipes, but I still couldn’t resist! They are just so good! Summertime is great for fruity desserts. It is also great to have a cold dessert for those hot summer days. This dessert is the perfect combination of the two. The creamy base of the tart is from a pastry filling recipe that I tweaked to make it more like a vanilla custard, but still extra creamy. The assortment of fresh fruit for the top can really be whatever you would like. Berries work great. I loved the addition of the kiwis to the mix as well. Be creative and create your own design with the fruit for some extra fun!
